Advent’s eABS receives STC for King Air 300/300LW variants
By Advent Aircraft
Advent Aircraft Systems continues to increase the aircraft count certified to accept its groundbreaking anti-skid braking technology. The FAA has granted an STC for the Advent eABS for all King Air 300 and 300LW aircraft. These aircraft variants join the King Air B300 and B200 variants that were STC’d in February 2016 and June 2017 respectively. The STC applies to Beechcraft King Air 300/300LW series aircraft equipped with Rockwell Collins Pro Line GPS 4000S or Garmin G1000/430W/530W avionics.

Beechcraft built 230 model 300/300LW variants. The 300LW, with its lower take-off gross weight, was purpose-built to comply with European regulations.
“We’ve heard from King Air owners outside the B200/B300 series. We know the demand is there, and we want those aircraft to have this system,” said Advent president, Ron Roberts. “Creating a wide base of aircraft which can use Advent’s technology has been part of the plan from the outset, and this STC is just one more step in that process. As already received for the B200/B300, we expect EASA, TCCA and other certifications for the 300/300LW to follow shortly.”
“Advent eABS sales to date have included installations on the B200, B300 and B300C, including heavy weight, high flotation gear and CAT Soft Touch tire variants,” said Tom Grunbeck, Advent vice-president of marketing and sales. “The 300/300LW certification adds to this expanding legacy.”
The Advent eABS may be ordered through all Textron Aviation company-owned service centers as well as selected independent authorized King Air service facilities (see www.aircraftsystems.aero/dealers). In anticipation of the STC and winter weather, Advent has produced a limited number of eABS units that are available for immediate shipment to service centers. Tom Grunbeck added “We are well positioned to support the initial demand for this exciting product and look forward to assisting with customer inquiries and orders”.
